Simone Schlichting grew up in an artistic family in the Slocan Valley, BC. She trained under a European Goldsmith and then took those skills into a 14 year museum career as an artifact mount maker. There she continued to learn metalworking techniques as she designed and created highly customized supportive mounts for artifacts.
Simone now works full time as a jewellery artist and sculptor, and splits her time between Nelson BC and Black Diamond AB. Simone has begun her journey into bronze sculpture by developing a body of work which focuses on capturing the iconic and powerful symbol of the horse. Her bronzes have been a part of the Castlegar Sculpturewalk in 2013 and 2014, as well as exhibitions at Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, AB, and Alberta Craft Council Gallery in Edmonton AB.
Her jewellery work has been part of a group exhibition at Influx Jewellery Gallery in Calgary, the Alberta Craft Council Gallery in Edmonton, Alberta, and is represented by numerous galleries throughout BC, Alberta, Ontario and PEI.
Simone also spends time each year sculpting ice and snow nationally and internationally.
